Halloween is just around the corner. Kids are picking out their costumes and we are decorating our homes with scarecrows, mums and pumpkins. This is the perfect time to take advantage of all those pumpkins and see a little pumpkin magic working in your natural skin care. You can steam fresh pumpkin or use canned one, either way it’s a great opportunity to try some very creative moisturizing and exfoliating face masks. Try the 2 combinations below and see how they work for your skin.
How many of us would have thought that pumpkin can have great beauty benefits? All that comes to our mind when we think about a pumpkin is holiday decorations, pies, scary Jack-o’-lanterns. But hold on, because it has great nutritional value and is a great beauty product. It offers vitamins, minerals, fibre and the all-important antioxidant that our body needs to stay healthy and young. And since winters can play nasty tricks on your skin, pumpkins are a great way to keep your skin supple and soft as always.
Pumpkin makes for a great moisturiser and exfoliating masks depending upon the ingredients you use. The enzymes in it give you a younger look and the natural alpha-hydroxy acids in pumpkin helps to remove cells to reveal younger, fresher skin. In fact, a lot of face products in the market use pumpkin as their main ingredient.
Pumpkin nourishes tired or dry skin instantly giving you a healthy glow anytime your skin needs a much-needed boost! Pumpkin peels can also help when you are having one of those dreaded breakouts and acne problems. The nutrients can help soothe and reduce inflammation naturally, helping skin recover from acne-related damage.
Another great thing about pumpkins are their seeds. They’re not only delicious, but also very nutritious. They are rich in essential fatty acids and a great source of zinc. So enjoy some this fall and nourish your skin from the inside out. That’s the pumpkin magic for the natural skin care.
